As promised, here is my Whipped Sweet Potato Delight. It was born on Thanksgiving many years ago when I was a young mother and was asked to make the sweet potatoes for the meal that year. Since I didn’t ever like the marshmallow-brown sugar version, I decided to make them in a manner that I would want to eat them. Mashed with lots of butter and cream cheese. From that Thanksgiving and every year after it has become a new tradition. And they are so good that I have to make enough for everyone to take some home. If you never like sweet potatoes unless they are in chip form or baked, try these…
Whipped Sweet Potato Delight
2 or 3 sweet potatoes pealed and cubed
6 Tbs butter
3/4 cup whipped cream cheese
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Boil the peeled, diced sweet potatoes in water until fork tender. Strain the sweet potatoes and mash or send through a Foley mill into a bowl that has 6 Tbs of butter cut up.
Next add the whipped cream cheese along with the salt and pepper. Whip until smooth!
I served these with the ham and apple chutney and the honey mustard au jus. So Delicious!!!
